Shantungosaurus v Tarbosaurus

Tarbosaurus bataar
Tarbosaurus belongs in the subfamily Tyrannosaurinae within the family Tyrannosauridae, along with the earlier Daspletosaurus, the more recent Tyrannosaurus and possibly Alioramus. Animals in this subfamily are more closely related to Tyrannosaurus than to Albertosaurus and are known for their robust build with proportionally larger skulls and longer femurs than in the other subfamily, the Albertosaurinae.
Although many specimens of this genus have been found, little definite data was confirmed on the dinosaur as of 1986, though it was presumed to share many characteristics with other tyrannosaurids. The close similarities have prompted some scientists to suggest a possible link between the North American and Eurasian continents at that time, perhaps in the form of a land bridge.
As with most dinosaurs, Tarbosaurus size estimates have varied through recent years. It could have been 10 meters long, with a weight of 4 to 5 - 7 tons.

Shantungosaurus giganteus
Shantungosaurus, meaning "Shandong Lizard", is a genus of saurolophine hadrosaurid dinosaurs found in the Late Cretaceous Wangshi Formation of the Shandong Peninsula in China. It is one of the longest and largest known hadrosaurids; the composite skeleton of a medium-sized individual mounted at the Geological Institute of China in Beijing measures 14.72 metres (48.3 ft) in length, and the type skull is 1.63 metres (5.3 ft) long. The weight of this genus is estimated at up to 16 tonnes (18 short tons). With a composite mounted skeleton 16.6 meters long (54.5 ft) it is currently the largest known ornithischian and, indeed the largest non-sauropod dinosaur. It had an unusually long tail, presumably to counterbalance the great weight of the body at the animal's hips. Like all hadrosaurs its beak was toothless, but its jaws were packed with around 1,500 tiny chewing teeth. A large hole near its nostrils may have been covered by a loose flap, which could be inflated to make sounds.

Shantungosaurus = 16.5 meters(15 meters in the image due to the head pointing down)
Tarbosaurus = 11 meters(10.5 meters due to the tail dip)

The Tarbosaurus pic you use is inaccurate.
I think this T.rex picture looks more like Tarbosaurus than the one you use. Tarbo is just basically an Asian miniature T.rex

Also broly, stop trying to make tyrannosaurids lose and making them look weak. It's annoying, and it's worse to be a hater than a fanboy

Shantungosaurus wins, it's simply to large, its size advantage is far too great
